In 1922, New York reaches boiling point: parties are longer, morals are looser, liquor is stronger and jazz is hotter. When naïve Nick Carraway is drawn into the decadence of America’s elite, he is forced to decide whether money matters more than his morality.

Following a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016, The Nottingham New Theatre brings their dynamic and vibrant new adaptation to Lakeside Arts for one night only.
